The Media Angel first to advertise on Cardiff’s new iconic digital SmartScreen billboard
It has been an exciting time for advertisers in Cardiff this month, as we welcome a brand new state of the art SmartScreen digital billboard to one of the city’s busiest junctions; the corner of Newport Road, Dumfries Place and Queen Street.
In what has been described as a “Piccadilly Circus moment for Cardiff” the new HD LED curved SmartScreen sits on Wales’s sixth busiest pedestrian shopping districts, reaching key audiences of around one million every week! The screen is dynamic, spectacular and unmissable; a fantastic out of home opportunity for brands in South Wales looking to deliver impacts in a prime location.
Perhaps even more exciting is the news that The Media Angel is one of the very first clients to advertise on this brand new platform in the capital city. As this exciting digital screen debuts this May, we are very proud to announce that our advert will be reaching large numbers of the Cardiff population on such a unique and high impact format.

More than half of adspend goes digital in 2015!
In 2015 it is predicted that the UK will be ranked the first country in the world to spend more than half of budgets on digital media.
Research conducted by market services company WPP has forecast that for the first time every for every £2 advertising spend; the UK will be spending £1 on digital media! The total ad spend figures for 2015 will hit £15.7bn with online spend growing rapidly to hit the £8bn mark!
It is reported that display advertising is the fastest growing market in internet advertising, which is likely to surge by 20% to reach £2.7bn. Display advertising has performed consistently well in ad spend stakes since 2013 with advertiser demand for this format rising steadily. Paid search advertising is likely to grow to £4.2bn with around 29% of that advertising on mobile devices.
The future is looking extremely bright for digital advertising and with observations that the British have a particularly keen enthusiasm for the digital world; there could be fewer rivalling ways to reach audiences in 2015.
